Matte, glossy or creamy – which lipstick texture is right for you? That’s like asking what your favourite ice-cream flavour is. Or which Netflix show is the best one to binge watch this weekend. It’s going to be a tough choice, so let’s make sure you have all the facts first.
The matte lipstick look is high-fashion and long-lasting. It also works with any and every colour, from a bold pink or red, to a classic nude. A great selection for ladies who aren’t crazy about the sticky feeling of a liquid lipstick or glossy lippie, our top recommendation for the best matte lipstick is the powderless Maybelline Color Sensational Bold Matte.
There’s something about a slick of glossy lipstick that makes you feel instantly feminine-fabulous. Plus, it also looks incredible in photos – talk about Insta-worthy! If you’d like to try a high-quality glossy lippie, we suggest giving the silky-smooth NYX Professional Makeup Lip Lustre Glossy Lip Tint a try.
There’s nothing quite like a creamy lipstick to leave your lips looking deliciously irresistible. If your aim this NYE is to score a memorable smooch at midnight, getting your hands on the best creamy lipstick is a must! We love the soft, ultra-moisturising NYX Professional Makeup Butter Gloss.
The bottom line...
Want an understated yet bold lip? Go for matte. Want to draw plenty of attention to a kissable pout on a hot date? Go for creamy. Want to shine (literally)? It’s got to be glossy. Splurge on at least one lipstick in each texture and mix and match as you go. Mwah!
